Matthew Aliuk: Eskimo in Two Worlds


Published 1973
Topics Bert Salzman


Matthew's Uncle Isak comes to visit the family in Anchorage after undergoing harsh and unfruitful hunting conditions in the North. Uncle Isak's challenges in dealing with a more structured urban environment presents a problem for he and family. The story is poignant especially when told by the Eskimos in the film; at these times the faces of the narrators reveal their sorrow and unease even more than their words.

Awards:
Midwest Film Festival Merit Award.
Alaska Council of Arts Award.

Matthew unselfishly helps his uncle reclaim his lost dignity.
A very moving story! And a model for young people.
